Winterheart's Guild" is the way Sonata Arctica shows maturity in their music. The changes are not audible from the very beginning, but they are bound to be found eventually. Tony Kakko's voice doesn't tend to go all that high pitched as it used to in older songs like "Blank File" or "Destruction Preventer", now he focuses more in the usage of his average range of voice and damn, it serves pretty well. Winterheart's Guild, an album that sort of gelled the sound down into a very calm and subdued album full of artistic vocal acrobatics and frosty, snow-caked guitar/synth melodies to top it all off. The band got a lot darker on this one, with the music sounding more intricate and personal than ever - a trait that would continue until the present day with their current opus Unia. The important thing about this is that Sonata Arctica weren't really trying to make an album to headbang to.
